          We stayed at University Inn on June 16th and were very impressed with the staff and the rooms. Central location very close to TCF, US BANK OR TARGET FIELD. We will be returning. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

          There are a lot of places to stay in Minneapolis. This is one very good option. It's affordable, the room is loaded (TV, kitchen, desk, etc.), the staff is laid back and friendly and the location is very good, especially for the university. Highly recommended!
